Soheyl Ghaemian Travel Fund for Scholars

As part of its commitment to promote arts and sciences in Heidelberg, the Ghaemian Foundation has established the Soheyl Ghaemian Travel Fund for Scholars. Soheyl Ghaemian is the CEO of the Heidelberg-based REUTAX AG, a burgeoning corporation in the IT sector. The Fund is meant to facilitate research and scholarly exchange in the field of American Studies by providing grants for travel to a library, archive or academic conference. Especially in the humanities, and in particular for graduate students and younger scholars, the challenge to procure funds for research-related travel is ever recurrent and often insurmountable. The Soheyl Ghaemian Travel Fund for Scholars helps alleviate this condition by assisting scholars with the expense of travel. The Fund is able to make annual allocations up to a total amount of 10,000 EUR. It is administered by the Heidelberg Center for American Studies (HCA). Grants are awarded in a speedy and unbureaucratic manner.


Grants from the Soheyl Ghaemian Travel Fund for Scholars are awarded by the HCA on a competitive basis. Eligibility is limited to graduate students, Ph.D. candidates, and postdoctoral scholars at the University of Heidelberg who work on topics related to the United States, Canada, and/or transatlantic relations.


The Heidelberg Center for American Studies welcomes applications year-round.

For research trips to archives and libraries, applications must include (electronic version):
